STUPID THINGS I WON’T DO WHEN I GET OLD A Highly Judgmental, Unapologetically Honest Accounting of All the Things Our Elders Are Doing Wrong By Steven Petrow with Roseann Foley Henry

Tune in on Zoom to virtually visit with author and columnist Steven Petrow as he discusses his new book, Stupid Things I Won't Do When I Get Old. Soon after his 50th birthday, Steven Petrow began assembling a list of “things I won’t do when I get old”—mostly a catalog of all the things he thought his then 70-something parents were doing wrong. Rereading the list once his parents were gone with a new, and sometimes weepy eye, he realized that this accounting of “stupid things” reflected his own frustration at watching them pay the price for being stubborn, and his own fears about aging. The list had changed to reminder—to make different choices about aging, living, and dying.

STUPID THINGS I WON’T DO WHEN I GET OLD (on-sale June 29, 2021) is part memoir and part manifesto. Petrow confronts his ageism towards his parents with a vow not to let life diminish or disappoint him as he makes his own journey. Petrow, who writes about aging issues for The Washington Post and The New York Times, humorously, honestly contrasts his parent’s generational attitudes towards aging as well as their struggles, with his own experiences as he faces illnesses, creaking limbs, greying hair, dying friends, and the loss of his parents. He commits to embracing the beauty, poignancy, and richness of his own life. STUPID THINGS I WON’T DO WHEN I GET OLD offers new rules of old age. It’s never too soon to look at how you plan to live the rest of your life, and break free from the negative stereotypes of aging. Petrow reframes aging – with equal tablespoons truth and wit – as a journey that can be happier, more in control, and completely yours, one full of life and vibrancy. 

Steven Petrow is an award-winning journalist and author best known for his Washington Post and New York Times essays on aging, health, and civility. He’s currently an opinion columnist covering manners and civil discourse for USA Today, and his 2019 TED Talk, “3 Ways to Practice Civility” has been viewed nearly two million times and translated into 16 languages. Formerly the host and executive producer of "The Civilist," a podcast from Public Radio International and North Carolina Public Radio WUNC, Steven regularly appears on television and radio. He's the author of six books, including Steven Petrow’s Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners and Stupid Things I Won't Do When I Get Old. A former president of NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, Steven is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including those from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Smithsonian Institution, the Ucross Foundation, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the National Press Foundation. In 2017, he became the named sponsor of the Steven Petrow LGBTQ Fellowship at the VCCA, a prize that is awarded annually. Steven lives in Hillsborough, N.C. with his cocker spaniel, Binx Bolling.
